Some clients want an hour or two with time with a lawyer, without the need to hire the lawyer for the full case. Consulting attorneys will charge an hourly rate, usually paid in advance, with a minimum of one hour even if you do not need the whole hour. A legal coach, often called a consulting attorney, helps clients navigate the process without the need for a large upfront retainer. While this option may seem cost-effective, multiple legal coaching sessions may end up being more costly than if you had retained the lawyer to do the work for you.
